I thought the WINE tree and regression suite would try and move away from a perl dependancy?
How is all of this going to effect building on Windows/ReactOS with Mingw? I have had a bitch of a
time getting Mingw+MSYS+Perl working and would hate to see it become a bigger requirement. If
-mno-cygwin worked right I dont guess it would be as big of a deal because then we could still
build WINE-Mingw under cyg but atm some import is still hosing things up and forcing importation
of cygwin1.dll so the recommended setup is just Mingw+MSYS.

Note: even using perl on cygwin is still borked atm for the regression suite and I havent even
tried winapi_check. another option may be to look at active perl for windows but I really dont
like that idea.
